and center into the presidential campaign. i think romney is trying to put the president on the defensive. that will give some perhaps glancing blows in the upcoming debate but if he wants to move aggressively to talk about substantive foreign policy, he's moving into an area that the president believes he's stronger and foreign policy is one of those areas where the incumbent has greater advantages and we will a he hear it in the upcoming debates. g.m. is alive and obama that will work to the disadvantage of romney. he wants to talk about the economy, which i think is what he sees as the administration's weakenings. the more time he spends on foreign policy it takes him away from his core message. >> eliot: the issue of iran and the bomb that was in the news during the u.n. general assembly meeting, where are we on that. the president seems to be inching towards a demonstration towards a lack of patience and the israeli view is that the time runs short. i mean is this a matter of months where we need some resolution? >> well, i think there is some makings of a deal but it's going to take
justice believes that a criminal defendant has the right to take the stand in his own defense. but that's not in the constitution and in fact, it wasn't even a practice at the founding in no state court in no federal court could a criminal defendant take the stand in his own defense. the constitution, as you mentioned, doesn't say presumption of innocence. it doesn't say rule of law. limit of government, federalrallism, separation of powers, right to privacy. it has the bill of rights but it doesn't say it. even conservatives, they believe in federalism and separation of powers. these are unwritten concepts. >> eliot: trying to put boundaries on where one can impose upon this document and one like you who believed it has evolved necessarily to reflect the values of our modern society, how do you impose limits upon how far you can go and the best argument i've ever heard for originalism is there is an amendment process. therefore if you want to find within the document something that was not there textually go o
been crushed for far less egregious defenses. >> why didn't anybody point that out? that was pretty nuts, both parties had him blessing. >> when you've got catholic running mates you don't really need to quote the far right catholic vote that heart. timothy dolan is not going to support the catholic side over to obama. i would surprised he would go to the convention. >> he kind of delivered a parting shot in his blessing saying we pray for those waiting to be born. it was clearly an anti abortion shot at the d.n.c. >> as soon as they're here, we can cut all funding for day care and public schools. what do you think is the most pressing issue for the female voter this year? it's easy to have todd akin as a booing gee man. what do you think is the number one voting issue for women in 2012. >> the economy job. women have lost more jobs under obama than any other president. that is a statistic the romney consistently rolls out women are suffering under obama more than any other president. it's not necessarily because of obama's policies. it's budget cuts in red states have forced them t
. you know, if you look at the situation, it would -- he -- he says he is going to increase defense spending. he says he is going to give us all a $5 trillion tax cut or at least the wealthy people and balance the budget. that doesn't take an act of congress. it takes magic. >> jennifer: all right. you are in his war room prepping him for debates, and you know you are going to get this question. how does the math work? what loopholes, deductions will you close or reduce? what would you advise him? >> there are over 200 tax deductions we have out there. his $5 trillion tax increases would cost us $550 billion a year. that's half of all of the deductions that are already out there. the top five account for 50% of that $1.1 trillion. and that's -- you know, that's health care, they are not going to cut that. [overlapping speakers] >> jennifer: okay. >> here is what he is going to do. he is going to tell the people that he is going to go the economy; that people are going to be out there paying taxes; there are going to be far fewer unemployed -- >> jennifer: that's
and he's going to defend it proudly. the one that's going to be on the defensive is going to be romney. and i expect obama to be very aggressive on romney during these debates. it will be fun to watch. >> i'm not defensive. you're the one that's being defensive. it's not me, it's him. >> of course i know that. ha ha, ha, ha. >> stephanie: combination of that and the liar. >> well, that minus the cigarette. >> stephanie: exactly. yeah.

during the debate, then automatically you are playing defense and wasting the time you would like to be using to make a proactive statement just reacting to what the other person is saying. so i think if somebody hits you with a lie in a debate you have to let the fact checker do some of that heavy lifter for you. when you were in the debate did you feels like you could respond? >> jennifer: when you are in a debate and somebody has said something completely false about you, you think do i want to spend my time responding to that craziness, which gets me really mad because they have done this or spend my time with my proactive agenda. there are some things you may want to respond to but when should you use your valuable debate time to actually do a response to an attack. >> i think when it's to your benefit to do that, if you can turn that around and make the other person who is making the charge look bad, that's when you do it. but it is so tricky. the thing that is so interesting about debates is you are in the moment. there is so much pressure, so much goi
, sir. >> now here here to explain that, and make a defense for his family, the brother of george zimmerman robert zimmerman. to many americans that's off-putting that he had no regrets. would you take that back if you could? >> i think george--first of all thank you for having me as representative of my entire family but george. george is a profoundly religious person. people who are religious, we grew up in the catholic tradition, they have a--they have a tendency to shy away from taking things back or suggesting other realities other than happened. it's in the religion-- >> i'm not sure every religious person would have reacted that way. do you think how people might have been upset when he saids i don't regret what happened. it's a terrible accident where a kid gets shot for no reason. >> i don't hear the same thing that you hear when i hear my brother talk about that. i hear he doesn't have regrets of how those things played out. george did say that, and you didn't play that, he wishes it would have happened some other way. he wishes there was some other thing he would have d

there. $25,000 for the defensive coordinator for the broncos. we have seen all of these unions have different issues. i always want to give you a sense of perspective on it. in this case the nfl is a $9 billion industry. the issue with the national football league's referee association is matter of $62,000 per team. really? we're enduring the worst refs of our life because you are worried about $62,000 a team. >> reporter: there are a lot of people in the league that would rather break the union. there's a lot of people don't feel like officiating is an on the field necessarily, it's a commodity. so they don't care bottom line. player safety doesn't matter in this case. >> cenk: so that's really interesting. i love those strong words by steve young. and the national football league player's association is is also getting involved, they say . . . and that is certainly what it looks like by the way as far as fans are concerned. sean spicer tweets out . . . and there are two more fans of the nfl that feel that way. we and ben mankiewicz. ben joining us now. ben, people s

mccain, lindsey graham saying we don't want defense cuts going into place. maybe we can talk about taxes. why? because they're going to do a tiny little trick with attaches and president obama has already said he's going to cut corporate taxes from 35% to 28%. in the end where are they going to get the money? from social security. now even david koch of koch industries is saying: >> why? because he's going to trick you. hey, here's a little tax increase wink wink. now give me your social security money. that is a deal i am not interested in. finally, david axelrod when asked about the social security deal had this interesting response. >> mark, i'll tell you what, when you get elected to the united states senate and sit at that table, we'll have -- this is not the time. we're not going to have that discussion right now. >> why doesn't he want to have that discussion about social security wouldn't it be the easiest thick for a politician to say under no circumstances will we cut social security. 84% of americans agree with that. if you're a progressive democratic you say of course, never
, to make him look professorial or weak or defensive. he's going to have romney, specific attacks to do just that. so the president needs to prepare, prepare prepare for what will be romney's perfectly-rehearsed, incoming scuds. so bottom line, mr. president, i know you don't want to do it. i know it is like swallowing terrible medicine, believe me, i know it is a painful unpleasant experience but mr. president for the good of the nation, get to the debate camp immediately. no more cancellations! with all due respect sir. all right. we're just getting started here on a wednesday night. coming up, colorado senator mark udall on republican efforts to take the wind out of clean energy. also, a rarity for us here in "the war room." somebody who actually works for mitt romney. we're going to be speaking with one of his top foreign policy advisors. later in the program, we'll tell you how unless you're a member of the 1%, the supreme court under the leadership of chief justice john roberts is not on your side. this is
